Presenting The Prevention Priority, an Annual Report from iEmpathize

We are committed to helping communities access effective and innovative prevention resources, and to overcome barriers that would limit action. Every state has an opportunity to advance the priority of prevention in the same way that priorities in law enforcement actions and survivor support have been advanced. Knowing what benchmarks to aim for is the first step. With that in mind, we provide an annual review of all fifty states and D.C. to identify which have enacted provisions that prioritize prevention education for youth and to urge legislative actions that will ensure youth will access prevention education.
